Notes About Social Empires Difficulties
Cash Tournaments in Social Empires are great way for you to earn Cash. However, when you are first starting, only attempt to do 15 Cash. As you can guess, as you advance the opponents get tougher. 30 Cash are usually filled with hard opponents who want to avoid hackers. And 50 Cash tourney usually house hackers who have unfair advantage over your team. So try a couple tournies and stick to the ones that your armies can handle. By fighting unfair and losing battles, you are sure to lose your Gold and CASH fast in Social Empires.
For the 50 Cash tournies, you will need to finish the matches really fast to have a chance at winning the tournament. We estimate that you should finish off the Social Empires tournament matches within 1~2 minutes per match.
Social Empires Tournament Timing and Delay
The tournies in Social Empire run a 24 hour timer.
Gift Box Units in Social Empires
In tournies, you can also use the units in your giftbox, however you can send out the units in tournies without actually “releasing” them from the gift box.
Social Empires Friends Tourney
It should be noted that you can also create tournies and play with your friends. Consider doing so because you can avoid having to battle hackers in Social Empire. This is also a good way to practice your Social Empires Tournament strategies without having to waste Cash if you lose. You will also earn rewards when you win Friends tournaments.
Social Empires Tournament Points Calculation
You get points based on how many units that you have at the end of the battle. However, if you have the same points as another player, whoever finishes the tournies faster with less time spent will be the winner of Social Empires tournament.
Social Empires Tournament Unit Strategies
Below are some of the common strategies that various players have devised, you should pick one that suits your playing style the most along with your current unit setup. Like most of the real time strategy games, there isn’t one best tournament strategy, you simply need to look at the “synergy” between the units of your team.
Please note that as additional units are released into the game, you can switch up and/or upgrade your units to achieve similar Tournament strategies. However the main idea and tournament winning concept is more or less the same.
Social Empires Tournament Strategy 1: Bait, Stun, and Kill
This strategy uses mainly Social Empires units that can stun enemies. The tournament team combination looks something like this. You will use your bait to draw enemy fire, while your stun team stun and halts the enemy. While your damage dealer deals damage to take out the enemy units.
5 Sayan dragon riders. These can stun small units (-500 health), can heal and has really good energy balls.
5 Stormy dragon rider. These can stun any unit, make great draggies and ruin red bahamut strategies.
3 Tiger spiders. These units can stun other units for a long time. It helps demon crushers (see below) survive.
3 Demon crushers. These units are crucial in a good strategy. They stun a whole area for 10 seconds.
3 King Kong’s. These units have good health and attack.
The general idea of using a good tournament bait in your team is that it must have the lowest health unit. By leaving this unit in the back, the AI will aim for this unit while getting stunned from your main team. Some of the good tournament baiting choices include: Ents, Spartan Champion, Black Ninja, 8 Speed Draggy, Medusa, Babarian. In general, you want a bait unit to have heal and stun abilities, is fast, or take less damage from attacks.
Social Empires Tournament Strategy 2: Minions Swarm and Hold Attack
In this strategy, you will create as many Draggies from your Black or Saiyan dragons; or minion units from others. Send the 12 draggies to your main army. Have the draggies damage the enemy army, however this strategy is less effective for enemy units with faster speed over 6.
What happens once you attack is that the enemies being attacked will counter the draggies, while the other enemy units will attack your other units other than the Draggies. At this time you can either Micro and use draggies to attack all the enemies, or overpower the enemy units with your stationary units. It depends on the relative army’s power between you and yours.
Worst comes to worst, you can keep on summoning draggies to keep enemies occupied. With this strategy you can achieve 300 points in tournaments. Again, this strategy is less useful against fast Social Empire armies because they can get to your stationary units faster.
Social Empires Tournament Strategy 3: Fire Colossus Power
Fire Colossus is one of the better Social Empire gods and Colossus units. Fire colossus has the ability to deal massive damage to your Social Empires tournament enemy armies. If you can, purchase a couple of them and have an easier time at winning Social Empires tournaments.
Cheap Social Empires Tournament Strategy: Waiters
This is strategy is considered cheap but sometimes unavoidable if your internet dies in the middle of the tournament. However this tactic is looked down upon when you do use it intentionally. What you do is to join the tournament but never play it to let the timer run down. If other players leave the Social Empires tournament without playing, they lose by default and make the tournament waiters the winner. This is a cheap way to win tournaments and some free units as reward.
